I’ve sky dived in New Zealand, scuba dived in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and I’ve lived with Mayans in Guatemala. I have done the adventure travel thing (I mention this because I want to sound interesting and desirable…but keep reading because there’s a twist). Travel is exciting and fun and I thought I would want to do it forever. I even studied Global Health as an avenue for having a global career. However, somewhere in my late twenties I began to change. I now desire home, community, and long-term relationships – things that are difficult to build when one is always moving.
In 2011, I left my career in public health to pursue a job as a teacher in Denver because I knew that Colorado was a place where I could put down roots. My gypsy days are over…but my travel days continue. That’s one of the great things about being a teacher, I have the time for vacation or to take classes or pursue other interests during my summer break. In fact, I just got back from a trip to Israel and Zurich. On this trip I learned that my travel style has changed, I now enjoy relaxation, scenery, arts and history, and great meals in foreign countries as opposed to budget adventure travel.
I want a family and a happy home and I’m looking for someone who wants the same. I want a best friend who enhances my daily life eating dinners, watching movies, and even pulling weeds in the back yard (or something like that…if weeds aren’t your thing it’s not a deal breaker!)
